I would have made the messages I transmit harmless “, he has declared. It was precisely Manuel who had the Maneskin band in his team who, after having triumphed last year at the Sanremo Festival, have known success all over the world.
The singer-songwriter supported them until the end, but the edition in which they participated was won by Lorenzo Licitra.

The former judge confessed that they asked him to calm him down because he could be obnoxious and arrogant on TV: “On the contrary, I emphasized it. I told him ‘do what you want’. And with little humility I was right “. Apparently Agnelli emphasized Damiano and didn’t follow what they asked him, because he didn’t want the singer to lose his nature. About the group he said: “I pushed them to be abrasive. This is my greatest merit, having given them the legitimacy license to be rock ”.
